Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum Tours

608 Reviews
From Elvis Presley to Dolly Parton, Nashville's stars have earned the city its title as “Music City,” and you can dive into that history and culture at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Learn about the best of this classic American music genre with historic video clips, recorded music, and a menu of live performances and public programs.

The Basics
A star Nashville attraction, the Country Music Hall of Fame is included on most Nashville sightseeing tours, including multi-attraction passes and bus tours. A guided tour of the museum is often combined with a visit to the Ryman Auditorium or other notable Nashville sites, such as the Johnny Cash Museum, the Tennessee State Capitol, or Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Book a ticket to explore independently or with an add-on audio guide, and pay homage to musicians Garth Brooks and Loretta Lynn before exploring a collection of country music history and memorabilia. Some Nashville music tours also visit the historic RCA Studio B—Elvis’s favorite spot to record—and Hatch Studio, one of the oldest working letterpress print shops in the US.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The ticket line can grow long during peak visiting hours; save time by purchasing tickets in advance.
  • The museum offers two dining options and multiple retail spots for souvenirs.
  • The museum and RCA Studio B are accessible by wheelchair. Tours for those with audio and visual impairments are available with two weeks’ notice.
  • Plan to spend two to three hours exploring the museum.

How to Get There
The Country Music Hall of Fame is centrally located in downtown Nashville, within walking distance of most hotels. Take the free Music City Circuit bus line or opt for a narrated hop-on hop-off trolley. Drivers can park in a nearby paid parking lot.

When to Get There
The museum is open daily from 9am to 5pm, except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. Come early in the morning for smaller crowds. Tickets are good for reentry on the date of your visit.

Architectural Keys at the Country Music Hall of Fame
Even if you don’t have time to tour the Country Music Hall of Fame, swing by to see the building’s exterior. The dark windows and white walls are designed to look like piano keys and make for a great photo op.
